HONOR ID and its related technologies and functions (collectively, the "Services") are provided and operated by Shenzhen Honor Software Technologies Co., Ltd., (hereinafter referred to as “HONOR", "we", “us", or "our"). In this Agreement (as defined below), "you" and "user" refer to any individual that uses and/or accesses the Services.
Purpose of this Agreement
This user agreement, privacy statement (available at Account center > Settings > About), and other policies published or made available through or in connection with the Services (collectively, the "Agreement") are the terms and conditions applicable to you for your use and access to the Services. This Agreement tells you who we are, how we will provide the Services to you, what activities are permitted, and what activities are not permitted, on or in connection with the Services, what to do if there is a problem, and other important information. Please read this Agreement carefully. By accessing or using the Services, you are entering into a binding legal agreement with us and agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not accept and agree to this Agreement, you must not access or use the Services.
You must be 14 years of age or older or have reached the age of majority for the legal jurisdiction that you select to create an HONOR ID. If you are not yet 14 years old or have not reached the age of majority for the legal jurisdiction that you select, then your legal guardian must agree to and help you create your HONOR ID. Your guardian can create a child account for you by going to Account center > Settings > Child account.
Accessing the Services
We agree to grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, and revocable license to access and use the Services, subject to and in accordance with this Agreement.
The Services require Internet access and provide you with the following features and services:
Use HONOR ID: You can log in to HONOR ID to use HONOR services such as My HONOR, HONOR Store, and HONOR Choice. You can also log into third-party services. We will provide services based on your device and the country you are in. Some features may not be available on your device. For more details, please refer to the user manual of your device.
Membership services: You will become an HONOR Premium Member when you register your HONOR ID and can enjoy membership benefits. For more information about HONOR Premium Membership, please refer to HONOR Premium Member Service Agreement (https://agreement.itsec.hihonor.com/asm/agrFile/getHtmlFile?agrNo=1121&country=cn&branchId=0&langCode=zh-cn).
Real-name authentication: You can provide your ID number and name or provide ID photo or face recognition to complete the real-name authentication in your HONOR ID so that you can use your real-name information while using applications.
Device interconnection: If you purchase devices from HONOR, our affiliates, and official partners, your HONOR ID will serve as proof of identification so that you can enjoy a consistent interconnection experience.
Find Device: When you log into your HONOR ID, Find Device will turn on automatically. This feature allows you to locate, ring, lock, erase data, and prevent the device from being erased or reactivated without your HONOR ID and password. You can also find and ring Bluetooth headphones that are paired with your phone and have the Find Device feature. You can visit the Find Device website (cloud.hihonor.com) or use other HONOR devices to access the Find Device app and locate, ring, lock, and erase data on devices that are logged in with your HONOR ID and have Find Device enabled. When the device is offline and cannot be located, you can send a command related to finding the device via SMS to turn on the mobile data for the offline device. If the “Lost mode” is enabled for the device, you can set the SIM card password remotely.
HONOR Cloud: HONOR Cloud provides users with Data Sync function. You can sync data from applications and features that support this function, such as Contacts, Gallery, HONOR Password Vault, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Calendar, and Notes, to HONOR servers and other HONOR devices that you have logged in to and set as trusted. Changes to your data in applications (not all, subject to actual conditions), such as addition, modification, and deletion, will be automatically uploaded to HONOR Cloud and synced to all your devices that are logged in to the same account and have related switches turned on. Data on these devices will be overwritten.
Cloud Backup will periodically create a data backup for your devices (including phones and tablets) when your device is locked, powered up, and connected to a wireless network. You can also manually back up your devices. Once the backup is complete, you can restore your device when needed. When you restore data using Cloud Backup, you agree that we can download the latest app versions from HONOR App Market to restore apps faster. Cloud Backup supports data of system settings, contacts, calendars, messages, call logs, recordings, and applications.
Data backup is a one-way operation that stores the files of your phone in the Cloud, avoiding the difficulty of retrieving local files after accidental loss. If you add, modify, or delete files locally after the backup, the Cloud will not sync the changes and will always maintain the status of the files at the time of backup.
If your device has not backed up any data to HONOR Cloud for more than 180 days, we reserve the right to delete any backups associated with the device and stop subsequent backups. We will send you a notice 30 days before data deletion. During this period, you may use HONOR Cloud to back up your data at any time or purchase an HONOR Cloud membership with a suitable storage capacity to continue to use this function.
You understand that data backed up to HONOR Cloud may fail to be restored or may not be available after restoration due to device type, operating system differences, or application compatibility. We will try our best to ensure that the data involved is safe and secure, but we cannot guarantee that any content you store or access through the Services will not be accidentally damaged or lost. You are solely responsible for backing up your important data to your computer or other devices.
Cloud storage upgrade
HONOR Cloud provides a certain amount of storage for free. When it is used up, we offer various storage upgrade plans. You can subscribe to a plan, which gives you more storage. You can go to the Upgrade cloud storage page to select larger storage and change your subscription. The subscription benefits will take effect immediately.
Based on the nature and characteristics of virtual products, the services you subscribe to cannot be exchanged for goods and cash, or used in the commercial field, such as buying, selling, exchanging, mortgaging, etc. HONOR Cloud may modify and change the fees and charging methods related to the Services according to its overall planning and will update and display the aforementioned modifications and changes on the corresponding service pages.
After you subscribe to a plan, HONOR Cloud will automatically charge your payment account associated with your HONOR ID at the end of an agreed-upon period of time. You should provide us with a valid payment account. If HONOR fails to charge you from your payment account on time, we will revoke your paid benefits and have the right to restrict your access to or delete your stored content.
HONOR Cloud allows users to apply for a refund for the yearly plan within the prescribed period. If your application meets the conditions, HONOR Cloud will refund the full amount to your payment account. After the refund, your storage will be restored to the default free capacity.
To utilize the storage resources reasonably, if you have not used HONOR Cloud for twelve (12) consecutive months, HONOR has the right to terminate the provision of HONOR Cloud service to you and to delete all the contents you have stored in HONOR Cloud. We will send you a notice of service termination and data deletion thirty (30) days in advance and freeze your HONOR Cloud data. Within thirty (30) days, you may apply for activation in HONOR Cloud app (phone or tablet) and delete your content to free up the storage (below the default free capacity) to continue to use the HONOR Cloud free services or to purchase an upgrade plan with a suitable storage capacity. For this term, "use" means accessing, uploading, or downloading data to or from HONOR Cloud.
Security and Risk Management
Account security: To ensure the security of your HONOR ID, we have set up a variety of identity verification methods, such as adding security phone numbers and emergency contacts, self-service to recover your password, and appealing to edit your account information. For example, by verifying your HONOR ID, we can use the information from other HONOR services to recover your password.
Risk management: To further enhance the security of your HONOR ID, we will make risk judgments when you perform high-risk operations, and risk management will be implemented when necessary.
Notifications: You will receive necessary push notifications such as HONOR ID service change notifications.
Service Experience Improvement
We will continuously enhance the quality and user experience of our current and future products and services.
You can ask for information or make a complaint through customer service.
The specific services and features we provide may vary depending on your device but will not exceed the scope described in this statement and will ultimately be subject to the services presented on your device.
If you log in and use third-party services with your HONOR ID, we recommend that you read the third-party agreements and privacy policies carefully. We have no rights or obligations to control or review the content of products or services offered by third-party service providers.

We recommend that you choose a strong password and keep it in a safe place. If you provide the above information to third parties or lose your phone or other devices, you will be responsible for any resulting losses and liabilities.

You may not transfer your HONOR ID with or without compensation to avoid disputes. You shall be responsible for any liabilities arising therefrom and we reserve the right to hold the above-mentioned perpetrators legally responsible.
If you are currently using an HONOR ID that was not registered by you or obtained through software or services provided by us, you should notify us in the first instance and not log into or perform other operations using that account.
If you lose your HONOR ID information due to personal reasons and need to recover it, you can follow the HONOR ID appeal process to provide the appropriate information. Whether the appeal is successful will depend on the information you provide.
